Pizza Open 2013: Thilo Keller Champ

Yet another win for Thilo Keller and his Arrow MKII. Great year for him and for IACA webmaster Thomas Paasch who ended 2nd, both with several wins though the season. Pizza Open report by Guido Schulte.
Season Finals in Wismar won by Thilo Keller
"The Pizza Open 2013 saw a close fight between Thilo Keller and Thomas Paasch, followed by Donald Beike on third place, which actually made it a repetition of the Flensburg podium, just a couple of weeks ago. Runners up after a consistant and strong performance are Jorgen Scanjet Hansen and Lars Schröder.

After quite fluctuating wind forecasts in the days before the event, eventually perfect wind conditions prevailed on Saturday,
resulting in 4 tense races in ideal and quite tactical 16-20 knots of wind, well in somewhat gusty and also misty conditions (, causing some competitors asking for the way back at the rescue boats). 21 participants (A big thanks to our Danish and Dutch friends) made it again the biggest regular A-Class event in the North of Germany. Sundays racing saw two races in light wind conditions at 5-9 knots, eventually dying off completely in the last race. However, a nice conclusion of the racing season also in the evenings while socialising in front of the cosy fire place. A part of the fleet will soon be packing their things for the worlds, the rest will be trying hard to find some more chances to wet the beast."
